56757 freight train.

Field. This is an untouched recording of a freight train passing through an Iowa town in the mid afternoon of an early spring day. If you stick it out to the end, you will hear the three distant blasts of its horn as it makes the next grade level crossing.

56733 almost forgotten.

Are you lost? No. I used to live here. But you can get lost in the most familiar of places. Yes. A memory. From many years ago. You never forget it, even if you've only heard it once. What could be more simple when someone is lost in the dark, guided by memories?

56700 in the twilight.

The frontier of our world is not far away; it doesn’t run along the horizon or in the depths. It glimmers faintly close by, in the twilight of our nearest surroundings; out of the corner of our eye we can always glimpse another world, without realizing it.

56690 world of stone.

Run away! Today! Or tomorrow. But tomorrow might already be too late! Because what do people become around here? They just burn out like this old mountain that was once a volcano. And they will all be left with hearts of stone in the end. Hard stones. Cold stones. This is such a dead world!

56658 beginning.

Beneath autumn stars, overlooking the valley that embraces the Tatar city of Bakhchysarai, we watch the pinkening sky as we hear an early morning chorus of dogs, the slight whoosh of a solitary vehicle, the crowing of restless cocks, and a call to god.

56654 khersones.

On a hook of land jutting into the Black Sea, amid the ruins of ancient Greek Chersonesos, supposedly lies the birthplace of Russian Christianity. There we find the recently rebuilt neo-byzantine Cathedral of St. Vladimir, and inside it, a nun who half-whispers, half-chants, her supplication.

56633 put out the light.

Stripped of all context, these four words, uttered by Orson Welles in the role of a familiar Venetian Moor, are suggestive enough, without bringing into it themes such as the darkness that enshrouds the vengeful, or the fragility of life itself.

56606 sound lens.

Situated in a tight spot between railroad tracks and a cliff face, the Cave Monastery of St. Clement at Inkerman, in the Crimea, occupies an unusual sound environment. The concave rock overhang acts as a sound lens, focusing in a small area the acoustic energy emanating from the large scale industrial activities just across the tracks.

“The man who had lost his identity card remained silent and thoughtful for a few minutes, then said, ‘I have troubled you. Still, if it’s no problem, could you please look around and find me an identity card of someone who has died? Is that possible?’”

Field. A summertime journey this year, into the northern marches of Romania where it joins Ukraine, yielded a number of rustic experiences. Come along amid the dawn insects, barking dogs, rattling mountain funiculars, bell-bedecked goats, crowing cocks, singing women — and more besides.

Workmen in a neighboring enclosed courtyard mix cement, haul sand, dig holes, and also use an unidentifiable piece of equipment that regularly emits a series of three percussive notes in the course of its operation. This is what I made of that.

“They say that in the market square, when they were bringing him around, the clock of the church began to go, just like that. The clock that had stopped years ago, and there it started all over again. And the poplar tree fell. A great crack and out came its roots. No wonder people are afraid.”
